Vista Could Be So Much Better

Vista From reading other blogs, it seems many developers are unimpressed with the sheen of Windows Vista, the next version of the Microsoft operating system. There is definitely appreciation for all the improvements under the hood, but the out-of-box experience (at least in the betas), leaves much to be desired.

That is why I love this post from Jon Galloway that first points to some videos that compare Vista to Mac OSX (released 2002). He then lists several ways that Microsoft could inexpensively do better. My favorite quote is this…

…you’ve got Paint.NET, which stomps MS Paint so badly I have to turn my head away and sob.
